Connect Lenses to AWS automatically and in a flexible way, including AWS IAM roles.
Until now, you could only connect Lenses to AWS using access keys.
This has been limiting and sometimes a security anti-pattern.
Lenses now supports the
AWS Default credentials provider chain.
With it, you can connect via different AWS credential providers, including credentials & IAM roles
assigned to the underlying EC2 instance or ECS container (a best practice).
Use it with the new setting:
(in Admin > Connections > Create AWS Connection)
Handle timeouts and rate limits.
Sometimes, Lenses would show errors when using Kafka broker metrics from AWS-MSK or Jolokia.
This varies depending on your Kafka setup. Some Kafka clusters take longer to report back metrics than others.
With slower responses, Lenses would time out or get rate limited by the Kafka metrics APIs.
You can now tailor the Lenses behaviour to avoid that. You can allow for more time before it reports that it cannot fetch metrics from your Kafka.
Adjust it with these 2 new settings: (in Admin > Connections > Kafka > Broker Metrics)
Improvements and advanced Protobuf features:
Improved experience in problematic situations.
